Re: Buy Atlanta Tickets or Hold Out for NC Show??

Its a tough call. I went ahead and got Sept 4th tickets expecting no NC shows this year. This far into it with no dates posted...The outlook is grim at best.

Re: Raleigh Tour Date

I'm in the same boat as you folks. I usually try to see him 2-3 times a year, really stinks when he skips NC completely. Even the Columbia show was a Tuesday night, which makes it very challenging to get to.

I've got Bristow tickets as well, but still have my fingers crossed for an NC date.

Re: Who's going to Nissan...er....The Lube on 9/4/10?

Any secrets you guys are willing to share on how you got seats in the 100 sections? I went for best available the second they went on sale, and mine were ALL in the 300's (Had 3 different browsers/laptops going). Ended up buying lawn seats, not worth $110 a ticket difference to sit about 30 feet fur...

Re: 2010 Bristow (Jiffy Lube Live) Tickets on Sale 2/19?

Orchestra 1 ???? How did you work that out??? I'm on there the second that tickets go on sale, always hitting refresh every second starting at like 9:55, and the BEST seats I can ever get are always in the last section of seats, so I always just get lawn. I've tried about 10-12 shows in a row now to...

Excellent - Thanks for that info...About what time? I haven't been to Nissan Lube Pavilion in a few years...In years past they've always opened the lots an hour or two earlier than advertised...Is that still the case?

Hoping some regulars on here can help me out with the gathering spots / hotel pre-tailgate spots for the 9/4 show. I used to get up with the BN folks regularly at concerts, but sadly I've been MIA for a couple years now. Anyone established a pre-tailgate tailgate spot yet? We're staying at the Candl...

If your 6 year old does get to chat with Jimmy, I'm cool with hearing Jolly Mon, but can she ask him to play 'Delaney Talks to Statues' for my little girl? She loves that song like no other :D :D

Re: Why has the Buffett catalogue never been remastered?

Not that I would mind having better sounding copies of his older CD's, but I'm almost appreciative that Buffett has never gone that route. Some artists release greatest hits compilations every 2-3 years, and remastered cds just as often, for no reason other than to have cds to sell.

Anyone else dissapointed he's not opening with Migration? When he opened with it in the Hawaii shows earlier in the year, I was really excited thinking he would open with it on this tour. It's def one of my favorites... Maybe I'll win the lottery soon and book my private show, till then, my arms wil...

Re: Parking at raleigh

Its a big open lot, and unless you park along a tree line, there's no shade. Most stuff says lots open at 3, but I'm always in the parking lot by 2. Its a great venue though, enjoy! :D

Re: Songs Buffett Needs to Retire From the Live Shows

I'll be seeing my 22nd show in Raleigh this Thursday, and I have to agree that if I could pick the setlist, SYKBH wouldn't make the cut. However, its that same CD that got my into Buffett many years ago, and I would have been bummed at my first few concerts if he didn't play them. Maybe I'll hit the...

I saw The Rolling Stones a few years back at Wallace Wade, and it was a GREAT show. I had very close floor seats, so I can't speak to what the venue is like all the way around, but I thought it was a great location for a concert. The stadium isn't huge, not close to as big as carter finley, so it wo...
